Ooh, Kim at Fresh Hell links to a story about the failings of Dawson’s Creek. I agree with all of them, but I don’t agree with the conclusion. I watch the show because it sucks. It fulfills the same purpose for me that cheesy romance novels do for other women. There are only so many good programs out there, and if you’re gonna watch crap, you might as well make it good crap. And besides, a sucky show just makes for more prolific fan fiction writers!
